But they didn’t stop there: DQ also released a “Zero Gravity” playlist on Spotify. The random-but-kind-of-awesome mix includes outer space-inspired songs like David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” and Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon.”
“Consumers have had an unwavering fascination with outer space since America’s landmark achievement nearly half a century ago,” said Maria Hokanson, Executive Vice President of Marketing at American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “Fans can feed their imaginations and taste buds alike with the Zero Gravity Blizzard Treat — sending their red spoon spaceships into a deliciously iridescent soft serve galaxy.”
The cosmic beverage will be available nationwide beginning June 24, while supplies last.
